    Lorenzo di Bonaventura, producer of Transformers, has stated in an interview with MTV that an Aircraft Carrier Transformer will not be in Transformers 2, due to it being too expensive.

    Taken from the MTV Movie Blog interview:

    Lorenzo di Bonaventura “We never really talked about that, practically speaking,” he said of the character who might or might not have been known as Broadside, and who Bay has said was simply too expensive to create. “There was some Japanese animated movie we saw where that occurred, and we were like ‘Wow! Look at that thing!’”

    The robots are getting more screen time & the humans less. That's all I care about.

    That's what I'm wondering!

    I don't think I would've liked to see an aircraft carrier bot anyway... no big loss for me :)

    I like that we aren't having the aircraft for TF2, they should focus more on core characters.

    I'd love to see what those 'casting surprises' turn out to be.
